Color Combination Crush - Aqua & Cobalt

The other day my niece asked me my favorite color. I immediately shouted out blue but even these stylish little ladies asked for a more specific shade of blue {they were making me a friendship bracelet} which had me thinking about two colors I have been particularly drawn to as of late. Personally any shade of blue is ok in my book but I am particularly loving cobalt and aqua in its every form. I especially have been adoring the two hues together. Doesn't it just scream summertime and dining by the seaside??? Check out what I think would be a great way to entertain and what to wear with these two fabulous colors!


one - this glazed ceramic vase boasts a subtle design that makes mixing with other tabletop patterns easy breezy. I would obviously choose big blooms of blue or white hydrangea's to fill the vase with.

two - change how you think about table linens by selecting an oversized linen towel or throw for the base of your table setting. 

three - without being too matchy-matchy this pitcher and tumbler set provides just a hint of color without being too overpowering. 

four - I am completely smitten with these petite sea salt pouches, they would be such a pretty favor to give your guests from a fabulous soiree or dinner party. 

five - this parting seas platter is not only pretty for serving delicious snacks, it would also make an incredible diy or even be gorgeous on display with other blue and white dishes.

six - growing up my mom always collected salt & pepper shakers so I always love to include them on my tables when entertaining. 

seven - mixed striped napkins add a little whimsy to your table with this well curated set. 

eight - change up your everyday cutlery with a modern painted bamboo set for casual dining.  

nine & ten - busier patterns work great in placemats as you can tone down the look with more subdued patterns on dishes & bowls.
